Voting to select the paintings which will feature in the Club Calendar for 2018 will be on 11th and 12th July at Townhill where photographs of of all the entries will be displayed. Arrangements are as follows:
Once again we are looking for donations of items suitable for raffle prizes as well as asking members to sell raffle tickets in advance of the annual exhibition (26 June – 5 July) at a cost of £1 per book of five tickets.
There will be two hampers as the main prizes and we would welcome wines and spirits, chocolates, tins of biscuits, new items of toiletries, jewellery and other attractive items. Donations of framed original paintings would also be very welcome.
Your cooperation is requested to make this a successful raffle which in the past has helped cover the cost of transporting the display screens, tables and other items to and from the Kingsgate. Annette Burgess is the main points of contact at the Club with regard to the raffle.
This post is a reminder that we will be producing a Dunfermline Art Club Calendar for 2018. This will be printed commercially and the outlay on printing expenses will be reimbursed to the Club from the proceeds of Calendar sales. The theme for the calendar is “Fife”. So, if you would like to create a painting in any medium on this theme for possible inclusion in the calendar, please submit your work (by 14th June) to Irma Brown or Anne Hill at the club. The painting should be A4 in size or equivalent proportions, unframed, and in landscape format. A selection process (members votes) will decide which pictures will feature in the calendar. Please see Irma or Anne if you need further information.
The Kingsgate shopping centre are to hold an event in May to celebrate the mining heritage of the area. It will be a comprehensive event with story telling, stalls, miners rescue service, an interactive area and choirs all being part of the event.
We have been asked to take part by having an exhibition of some 30 to 40 paintings of scenes depicting mining and associated activities. We will be allocated space in the “egg” on the same side as the Shopmobility unit.
The event runs from the 15th May 2017 when we would be required to set up.
Following on from this event, Dunfermline Delivers are to create a heritage walkway in the town centre and a selection of our pictures will be enlarged, weatherproofed and put on permanent display with acknowledgement to the club and the artists. A good quality digital image is required for this purpose.
So get painting and you could be one of those artists.
Please add your name to the list on the notice board with the number of paintings you will be submitting.
